Moon phase and lunation details

5 days after Last Quarter

Previous main lunar phase is the Last Quarter before 5 days on 26 January 2049 at 21:33.

Moonrise and moonset

Moon rises after midnight to early morning and sets in the afternoon. It is visible in the early morning low to the east.

Moon in ♑ Capricorn

Moon is leaving the last ∠2° of ♑ Capricorn tropical zodiac sector and will enter ♒ Aquarius later.

Apparent angular diameter ∠1968"

Lunar disc appears visually 1.1% wider than solar disc. Moon and Sun apparent angular diameters are ∠1968" and ∠1947".

Snow Moon after 16 days

Next Full Moon is the Snow Moon of February 2049 after 16 days on 17 February 2049 at 20:47.

Upcoming main Moon phases

Moderate tide

There is medium ocean tide on this date. Sun and Moon gravitational forces are not aligned, but meet at very acute angle, so their combined tidal force is moderate.

Lunation 606 / 1559

The Moon is 28 days old. Earth's natural satellite is moving from the second to the final part of current synodic month. This is lunation 606 of Meeus index or 1559 from Brown series.

Synodic month length 29.45 days

Length of current 606 lunation is 29 days, 10 hours and 51 minutes. This is the year's shortest synodic month of 2049. It is 5 minutes shorter than next lunation 607 length.

Lunation length shorter than mean

Length of current synodic month is 1 hour and 53 minutes shorter than the mean length of synodic month, but it is still 4 hours and 16 minutes longer, compared to 21st century shortest.

Lunar orbit position on

True anomaly ∠3.8°

This New Moon true anomaly is ∠3.8°. At beginning of next synodic month true anomaly will be ∠20°. The length of upcoming synodic months will keep increasing since the true anomaly gets closer to the value of New Moon at point of apogee (∠180°).

Moon in perigee

Moon is reaching point of perigee on this date at 08:51, this is 15 days after last apogee on 17 January 2049 at 00:48 in ♋ Cancer. Lunar orbit is starting to get wider, while the Moon is moving outward the Earth for 12 days ahead, until it will get to the point of next apogee on 13 February 2049 at 12:40 in ♋ Cancer.

Previous apogeeNext apogee

Distance to Moon 359 256 km

This perigee Moon is 359 256 km (223 231 mi) away from Earth. It is 3 252 km closer than the mean perigee distance, but it is still 11 100 km farther than the closest perigee of 21st century.

Moon after ascending node

2 days after its ascending node on 29 January 2049 at 17:52 in ♐ Sagittarius, the Moon is following the northern part of its orbit for the next 10 days, until it will cross the ecliptic from North to South in descending node on 11 February 2049 at 17:32 in ♊ Gemini.

Draconic month

2 days after beginning of current draconic month in ♐ Sagittarius, the Moon is moving from the beginning to the first part of it.

Moon after southern standstill

2 days after previous South standstill on 29 January 2049 at 19:42 in ♐ Sagittarius, when Moon has reached southern declination of ∠-22.806°. Next 10 days the lunar orbit moves northward to face North declination of ∠22.719° in the next northern standstill on 11 February 2049 at 21:45 in ♊ Gemini.

Syzygy in 1 day

After 1 day on 2 February 2049 at 13:16 in ♒ Aquarius, the Moon will be in New Moon geocentric conjunction with the Sun and this alignment forms next Sun-Moon-Earth syzygy.
